Fun to win the game and almost have a lock from the fourth podium. $15K on TSers taking DDs at Face Value.

The bad news tonight was that there was a storm somewhere in this time zone, so good old Channel 19 devoted THE ENTIRE FREAKING HALF HOUR to staring at the Doppler radar map. ("Oh, look! This cloud has moved two miles since we showed it to you five minutes ago!) I swear, it took them longer to say ...

Nice job by our boardie on securing another lock.
A 30 was a D with a curve in a 400 level math course exam in my college years 20 years ago.

Anyone else remember a commercial from the 1970s that used the theme mentioned in FJ? It was for some over-the-counter medication. I think the product started with a V because a person in the commercial would mention some ailment and another person would hold up their fingers in a V and the music f...

Surprised nobody went for "Lamb" given the wording of the clue - don't know the essayist but it sort of screamed it. High-value clue though, so depends how risk-averse you are.
Charles Lamb AKA his pseudonym Elia is quite known to crossword fans.

SMith is Margaret Court's married name. The Iberian Peninsula clue is a teen or celeb or even kids' week clue some would argue.

HOmetown Howdies said that the 6/5 returning champ Chris Wonderly would be on today's show, rather than saying the returning champ would appear on a day other than MOnday(whether or not the champ would in fact be on on a day later than Monday in the week), which they've been doing in recent weeks, s...

My friends are apopleptic over the four-letter science clue that asked for something measured in Joules.

Now it can be told that once again, the Hometown Howdies had Dan scheduled to play on a day other than MOnday, in this case TUesday,. THis time they were correct, last week they weren't correct when they gave the day the returning champion would appear.
